Somali speaker’s dishonesty and indecisiveness derailing TFG: Says Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi (Farmaajo) also Museveni Hands Ultimatum to Somali Leaders

Somali PM accused the speaker of rejecting negotiations and instead wanting to do "back room" deals with him "personally"

Mogadishu (tf.sf) -Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi (Farmaajo) on Tuesday described the speaker of parliament as indecisive and dishonest.
The PM Abdullahi criticized the speaker of the interim parliament of as one engaged in driving a divisive wedge between the executive and members of parliament so as to derail the efforts of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to bring order in the war-torn Somalia.
Addressing a press conference in his office at government headquarters in the capital Mogadishu, Farmaajo accused speaker Hassan of failing to respect the will of the Somali people and government.
“The speaker of the parliament is not honest to the people and the nation of Somalia. For four months now he has been reluctant to attend meetings to solve the difference within the interim institutions” Farmaajo said.
“He has requested for a private meeting with the prime minister but I told him we need to settle the disagreement as a general problem facing the nation, but not solving at individual levels”
Criticizing Sharif Hassan he said it cannot only be the speaker’s interests, but that of the country at large.
“The speaker should bring all issues in front of the house for deliberation, but he takes a parallel decision of solving issues. The speaker refused all options, that is when we decided also to extend the term of the government by one year because we are fighting insurgency groups” the premier added
He further blamed the speaker of trying to derail the transitional government in order that he (speaker) can take some strategic portfolios in the next government, but Farmaajo hinted that they will strongly oppose what he calls interference by Sharif Hassan and his political acquaintances.
Farmaajo further said the much anticipated Mogadishu peace conference has been postponed. The meeting that was suppose to kick off in few days time was suppose to bring together Somalis of all works of life to discuss the country’s aggravating situation.
According to the prime minister the meeting was postponed due to unavoidable circumstance including the longstanding dispute within the interim intuitions. The meeting is slated to take place later in the year.
The row that has affected the performance of the TFG is yet to be settled as the official expiry date of the government draws nearer.
Analysts say the speaker is interested in running for the country’s top seat in case the term of the current president comes to an end in August 2011 as scheduled... more Premier Farmaajo: Dishonest, Indecisive Speaker Derails TFG

Power Sharing Mooted to End Political Crisis
According to BBCsomali :somali PM infuriated by speaker of parliament who wants his allied ex-ministers to be reinstated,power sharing deal?

Update: A final meeting between the Somali president and parliament speaker hosted by the Ugandan president did not take place as planned tonight because the Somali prime minister has not yet arrived in Kampala. Sources told TF.SF that the PM was called to "either convince him step aside or be given a role in the new proposed format."
Ugandan leaders held a closed-door meeting with President Sheikh Sharif Sheik Ahmed and Speaker Sharif Hassan Sheik Adan and put on the table a power sharing deal that if agreed upon may see the speaker’s side accept positions in cabinet or have a hand in the formation of a new cabinet that may replace the one currently headed by Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.

However, both sides initially clung to their positions despite Museveni’s tough stance in bringing about a deal to end the dispute over whether to hold elections this year. Museveni is on record as suggesting a one-year extension for the TFG. Uganda is a major contributor of troops to the peacekeeping mission in Somalia.

“Museveni gave us a deadline which expires tonight (Tuesday night) to agree on the proposal,” said a source who attended the meeting. “If there is an agreement on this, it could at least reduce tension and can give one more year to TFG to complete its tasks, without going through an election”
The source said the two sides were expected to meet Museveni tonight for a final decision on the matter.

Sheikh Sharif and Adan have been staying at a luxurious Munyonyo beach resort in Kampala, Uganda, where a meeting by the International Contact Group on Somalia was concluded on Friday.
In what seemed like a reaction to the “proposals” by Museveni, Farmajo on Tuesday accused the speaker of “engaging in a bargaining game” and said he was seeking cabinet positions for his cronies.
“The speaker has been advocating for an election in a bid to remove the current cabinet from power,” he said.

The PM also announced that a reconciliation meeting planned for Mogadishu next week has been postponed
A diplomatic source told  TF.SF  that the Somali Prime Minister is expected in Kampala this evening in an effort to have him to join the talks.

Details are sketchy on how the proposed power-sharing can be formulated. However, sources say it is possible that a new cabinet can be agreed upon in order to give a term extension to TFG.
Sheikh Sharif insists an election this year, when the mandate of the TFG was due to end, is too early and more time is needed to build on gains made over militant Islamist group al-Shabaab.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
